The park offers 60 designated mooring sites in Deep Bay. The Nature Center offers a variety of programs; and, is available to the public all year. The park's trails, including nature, hiking and biking trails, wind through interesting habitats, from forest to marsh to shoreline. The trails are in use all year for school programs, nature hikes and cross-country skiing. The park also provides access for ice fishing.
